Halal Romantic Dinners You Can Order Home
We all know that food is the key to someone’s heart and since we’re in our third lockdown, going out for a romantic dinner is off the table. However that doesn’t mean you can’t try your hand at cooking a dinner for two from scratch, opting for your favourite restaurant’s takeaway or delivery, or even ordering a DIY kit for you and your partner to create together!
Here are a few of our favourite halal romantic specials that restaurants are offering this month:
Valentine Weekend Brunch, Sapna Caterers
Have you both been missing out on mum’s home cooked food or going out for halwa puri on the weekends due to lockdown? Why not check out the Sapna’s Valentine weekend brunch pack that comes packed with freshly fried puris, halwa, chaat, and so much more. The food will arrive fresh and hot to your doorstep so it may not even require heating up. It would be a crime to miss out a menu this good.
Price: £60 for a couple and £95 for a family of 4
Halal Status: All meats served are halal
Delivery: Free delivery across greater London
Valentines Day Menu, Benares
Fancy going all out and splurging on dinner from a Michelin-starred restaurant? Enter Benares at Home. They are offering a special Valentines Day menu which include a whopping 9 dishes for £175. You can expect paneer malai korma, chicken makhani, lamb chops, chocolate gol guppa, and a passion fruit panna cotta. If you don’t want to do the whole shebang, you can opt for their pies, roasts, and chaats too.
Price: The valentines menu starts from £175
Halal Status: Lamb and chicken is halal.
Delivery: London-wide delivery 7 days a week. It is best to pre-order one week in advance of your planned dinner. Collection available too.
Beef Wellington, Claridge’s Dine At Home
Another establishment that would have made for a super luxury dinner date but that’s okay because you can put together some of their iconic dishes in your own kitchen! Whilst we love the idea of having the Claridge’s chicken pie (I am just drooling at the thought of the golden, buttery pie crust), what you really want to go for is the beef wellington served with all the trimmings and a special jus. You’ll just need to finish it off in your oven!
Price: The beef wellington costs £75
Halal Status: Halal options must be preordered a few days ahead of your dinner and must be stated in the notes section of the order. The hotel are extremely accommodating and understanding of any halal requirements you may have! Please be aware that the accompanying jus for the beef wellington contains alcohol so it is vital you note down you want “halal only” in the notes section
Delivery: Delivery is available at a charge to the local surrounding areas but you can opt for the collection service too.
The Halal Zelman Meats Steak Dinner for 2, Zelman Meats
Steak has always been known to be the original romantic dinner. It’s uncomplicated, easy to cook, and can actually boost the libido for both men and women! Which is why this halal steak box from Zelman Meats could make for the perfect Friday date night meal. For two people, you’ll receive two steaks (sirloin and fillet), 2 burratas, sides, sauces, and steak seasoning too.
Price: £75 for two people
Halal status: All the steaks are halal in this box.
The Valentines Steak or Beef Wellington Box, Cona Restaurant
Cona was one of the first halal fine dining restaurants in the UK and perhaps is the most romantic halal restaurant in the UK too. Unfortunately, having dinner there just isn’t feasible at the moment but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the excellence that Cona is. They have started shipping their iconic dishes nationwide so you too can have a taste of their high quality steaks, beef wellingtons, and indulgent burgers too. They are currently running a valentines menu consisting of either the steak or beef wellington with all the trimmings, burrata, and a sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream which you can finish off at home!
Price: £80 for the steak valentines box and £110 for the beef wellington valentines box.
Halal Status: All meats served here are halal
Valentines Day Special, Smoke and Bones
Smoke and Bones are always churning out exciting new dishes and menus so of course, their Valentines Day 3 course special is a must try.

Red Velvet Hot Donut Kit, The Treats Club
The Treats Club have been serving up their hot donut sundae diy kits throughout the last year.
